Baron Blitzkrieg (DC)
Real Name:
Search for 'Baron Blitzkrieg (DC)' on Amazon

Baron Blitzkrieg's mind was altered by Hitler's scientists, thus allowing him extraordinary psychic control over the various physical functions of his damaged body, which was encased in armor for his own protection. He can control his own metabolism, and is able to somehow alter his musculature to provide himself with greater strength for limited durations. At his peak, Blitzkrief has claimed to be as strong and swift as Wonder Woman. He has a limited ability to channel his internal energies through his eyes to create crude, but destructive, heat beams. It has been theorized that he can only channel his energies to perform only one function at a time.

He is a frequent opponent of the heroic All-Star Squadron, a band of costumed adventurers who fight domestic and foreign menaces during World War II. Baron Blitzkrieg was originally an especially vicious German army officer (known as "The Butcher") who was blinded when a concentration camp prisoner threw acid in his face. German scientists experiment on Blitzkrieg, giving him superhuman strength, invulnerability, optical energy beams and the ability to fly. However, each of these abilities are manifested one at a time and only with training is he able to incorporate them together.

Baron Blitzkrieg is the leader of Shadowspire and allied with Vandal Savage's organization known as Symbolix. Together, they incorporate experimental research which produces the superhero Damage. The Baron becomes a recurring foe in Damage's series, starting with issue number three.

During the JSA tie-in to Infinite Crisis, it is revealed that Baron Blitzkrieg has joined the Society. The Philadelphia heroine known as Liberty Belle, who gets her powers from the Liberty Bell, attempts to jumpstart her abilities by ringing the bell. However, due to the recent supposed death of Uncle Sam (who has recently returned in A Brave New World), her powers are unfocused, and Blitzkrieg is thought to have been killed by the sonic shockwaves. He appears again in Infinite Crisis #7 where he is killed by Superboy-Prime who fries the Baron's head with his heat vision.

A new, Nazi-themed speedster supervillain named Baroness Blitzkrieg recently appeared as a member of The Fourth Reich, a team of Nazi-themed supervillains in Justice Society of America. Brutal in her killings, she runs through her victims and turns them into pulp. Her connection to the Baron, if any, save for the same purple lightning symbol, has yet to be revealed.
